Oddly, the past 3 nights in a row, my cable system has run the "weekly" EAS test, at various late-night times here on the east coast of the U.S. I can
understand running tests of the system, and it is a required weekly test according to the message in the screen during the test while the BEEP BEEP
BEEP plays. However, with my wake/sleep cycle being what it is, I've actually seen them run these tests late at night periodically. That's expected,
but I have noticed them running these tests more frequently, up to this week being run 3 nights in a row.
What are they working on that they need to test it so frequently? Are they preparing for something where they expect to use it soon? I dunno, but I
thought I would present my experience here, and see if any other ATS'rs have noticed or may know the reasons why these tests have increased in
frequency beyond the required weekly time frame.
A quick Google search has shown this happened in the spring of 2012 as well.
Third EAS Weekly test tonight, and third time this week!
ETA: Just after I posted this, it happened yet again, after only 10 minutes from the last one tonight. That's 2 within a short time frame now. I'll
post each time they run tonight, if it keeps occurring.
UNRELATED: I just noticed that was my 1000th post here on ATS (releasing the balloons to be mistaken for UFO's, so monitor the UFO forum for reports,
